JO'S '69 KARMANN CAB BUG

Today has been a Milestone - for many years I've wanted a beetle cabriolet and upon meeting Beetledave on Saturday a chance conversation mentioned that he was selling a Karmann Cab Beetle.

So without hesitation - I went to view it the very next day.

And I'm pleased to say that today is the day that I now own a Karmann Beetle Cabriolet







Thanks again Dave - I'm over the moon

Jo

If I am thinking straight and this is the Bug I think it is then here she is in 1999 before the long bonnet, sloping wings and blade bumpers were fitted.


I might have a picture somewhere showing the number plate but not sure and this was in the days of 35mm film photography so would need to dig the box of prints out.
